Finally there's a use for my SJ-131x folding tactical pooper scooper with laser sights. I'll be rich!

I say a gross of Scooby Snacks laced with ExLax and a regiment of these "chute dogs" and we can end this war quick.

I'd like to try that with one of my cats. Shredded Cold Shaw!

oh yeh - that dog looks thrilled - not.

Even if they don't realize they are that far up, once they get to around 1000 feet or so, they are going to start freaking out once they see the details on the ground begin to emerge. And it will only get worse the closer to the ground they get.

What, no recipes for airborn dogs?

Dog pancake, no recipe required, although a little sugar and lemon might help

Notice they do not really care about these dogs. They have taken pains to ensure the men cannot be identified, but the face of the dog is clearly visible. This leaves it vulnerable to attack simply walking down the street when on leave, minding its own business and sniffing that of others.

"trained to attack anyone with a weapon"? jumping out of airplanes? can you say crazy?

It's muzzled to protect it on the landing. The American Special Forces, who developed this technique, fit their dogs with oxygen masks for high altitude jumps.

I've heard that once, during the Vietnam War, US forces attempted to deliver an elephant by parachute. It was not successful. The knees couldn't stand it.

Great Scott! It's raining

I'm thinking this dog is liking it. This must be the ultimate head out the window, wind up your nose experience he could ever have!
Elspode Tuesday Mar 23 09:35 PM
I think the dog is muzzled to keep it from biting the shit out of the guy who jumped out of an airplane with it.
xoxoxoBruce Wednesday Mar 24 05:33 AM
No no, Elspode, that's cats you're thinking of.
classicman Wednesday Mar 24 08:47 AM
I'm with Els ... and rightly so that guy deserves it.

I'll wager that muzzle is to prevent dog vomit streaming all over the skydiver, at 200kmh. There's nothing like dog vomit plastered all over your face, to make you forget to pull the ripcord .....
spudcon Thursday Mar 25 07:52 AM
I hate it when that happens
Happy Monkey Thursday Mar 25 11:23 AM
I'm guessing the muzzle is to protect the tongue.
